A - Pours a very nice mahogony body with a fluffy off-white head that retains very well. Quite attractive.
S - Definitely get the vanilla bean aspect in this beer right away. Vanilla and sweet dark malts, no real hop presence. Slightly oaky aroma but I don't really get the bourbon... just strong vanilla extract that gives it that alocoholic smell.
T&M - This was a mess. At first sip I thought this was decent, then it went downhill. Tastes like a very unbalanced doppelbock IMO. Strong vanilla extract taste with boozier alcohol than expected. Very fizzy and sweet on the tongue with a disastrous aftertaste. This left a terrible taste in my mouth after each sip.
D - This ended up in the drain. I think this is my first drain poor... maybe my second behind MGD. I just couldn't put this down. A few sips was more than enough for me and I think I'm very optimistic about beers and rate them highly in general. Absolutely will not try this again. Period.
